next couple days. clouds will pass through over the next few hours. they'll diminish overnight. that sets the stage for a mostly sunny sky for monday. pleasant in philadelphia, upper 70's both at the shore and the poconos. warmer temperatures for the middle of the week. i'll show you how hot we get coming up in the seven-day forecast in a few minutes. natasha. >> justin thanks. the hunts is on for a person who ran a man down and shot him in lawncrest. it unfolded on ramona avenue on saturday night. investigators say the victim was struck by a black honda civic. someone got out of the car and shot the man in the chest and stomach. the car was later found abandoned and on fire. still unclear what prompted a double homicide in the northeast. two women were shot in the head and prone pronounced dead saturday night inside their home on the 2700 block of vista street. the 54 year old victim was discovered on the floor in an

today were a little bit on the below average side and it's pretty gusty winds near the shore and those ocean water temperatures again in the low to mid 70's so that keeps the coastal temperatures down. so here are the winds. right now still out of the east to northeast at about six to even 12 to 15 miles per hour. near the coast that again keeps the temperatures very pleasant but things will change as we we have that dip in the jet stream over us now but by the middle of this week that jet stream takes a ride to the north. that helps to bring back some of the heat so temperatures return above average so we're looking at mid to upper 80's coming in tuesdays and wednesday, possibly even making a run at 90 degrees. association here's the setup. that high pressure area situated right on top of us for tomorrow still keeps it nice and pleasant. humidity levels on the low side. lots of sunshine. temperatures back into the low to mid 80's. tuesday i think you'll start to feel the difference in the heat. we start to bring mid and upper 80's back into the delaware valley. the humidity level still not bad. just a little bit more humid. then i think wednesday will be our hottest day, upper 80's,
possibly 90 degrees and there's going to be a weak cold front that swings through here for thursday. that will knock the temperatures back down a few degrees but overall temperatures pretty much at or even above average as we finish off the month of august. let's time it out for you. not much happening overnight. those clouds will dissipate. good start to your monday morning commute into monday afternoon, mostly sunny conditions. same deal on tuesday. bright sunny skies and that trends until wednesday as well, so we're setting up to see a pretty good stretch of some dry weather in our forecast. this is tropical storm cristobal. winds at 45 miles per hour impacting southeastern bahamas right now moving pretty slow to the north at 8 miles per hour. there's the official track. takes it to the north, intensifying it into a category one hurricane that kicks back out toughie. doing splits here, field goal the uprights. this will bring recover surf especially outer banks for the upcoming weekend. delaware beaches and the jersey shore probably by the
middle to latter half of the up coming week. always make sure the lifeguards are around and obey the rules. 82 degrees for afternoon highs for many spots. for the inland areas on tuesday -- or monday into tuesday we go, even warmer, mid and upper 80's so that's the trend to look forward to this week. comfortable tonight, a few clouds, 63 for center city. some suburbs down into the 50's. warmer day tomorrow, mostly sunny skies. here in the city 84 degrees. another nice looking beach day with plenty of sunshine at the jersey shore, upper 70's but still that wind is going to be a bit gusty out of the northeast at 15 to 20 miles per hour. so, ocean is going to be chopped up a little bit so we'll keep the threat moderate for the rip currents. here's the extended forecast. upper 80's getting close to 90 on wednesday. a lot of sunshine through the end of the week. it looks like next weekend, that's our best chance for a shower or thunderstorm. i know it's labor day weekend but it's not going to be an a all day washout. no need to cancel the barbecue plans. >> thanks justin. lesley has sports highlights. >> after a tough loss last
night phillies get one more chance to win their first back to back series since april. the game three tie breaker with the cardinals this afternoon at the bank and the phillies bats putting up plenty of hits. chase utley at the plate revere on second sends a liner to second. revere heads for home and the phillies are up one-nothing. pressure on from there. bottom of the thi phils up five-nothing. j. roll with a home run to extend that lead even more. phils easily take this one, the final score seven-one and a good outing for jerome williams in his third start for the team. he would pitch eight innings five strikeouts. skipper ryne sandberg is happy with the new addition. >> working real well with both catchers and he's working good with the mitt. he's a command guy hitting his spot and then mixes speeds as
you go along through the lineups but he was outstanding and just a big lift on a day given our bullpen break after yesterday. >> and the phillies will pay special tribute to the taney dragons later this week. the entire team will participate in a ceremony before wednesday night's game against the nationals. some of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the taney little league. meanwhile, jackie robinson reds from chicago, the team that knocked the dragons out of the little league world series playing in a championship game. south korea wins this one, eight to four. well, another dave practice at the novacare complex today. the eagles still making adjustments two weeks left until the start of the regular season and a big concern coming into camp has been the pass rush. improvements need to be made but in the first three preseason games the defense has proved that they can get to the quarterback at key times. >> so, when you study the tape over and over again you see
who's moving the quarterback off his spot. that is more important to us than the sacks are because other things happen when you move him off the spot, the rhythm of the offense is broken down, incomplete passes, turnovers, all those things are attached to it. >> the team still has one more cut to make before tuesday then another 22 by next sunday. >> nothing is in stone yet. i don't want to go ahead with another game left and say who is a starter and who is not. a lot of it, you know, is pretty much there. i would say still all penciled in. anything could happen. >> the union back in action tonight at ppl park hosting the san jose earthquake. san jose trying to get themselves back in contention eight points out of the playoff spot. that could make them a dangerous team f for the union. kickoff
>> ♪ >> welcome back everyone. after disappointing players for 20 long years a vegas slot machine finally pays out in a big wage listen to this. a lion's share machine in the mgm grand paid out $2.4 million to this lucky couple from new hampshire. they decide d to give eight try after reading an article about the stubborn machine. they had been playing the three-dollar max bet for about five minutes before the unthinkable happened and it was just meant to be apparently. they plan to buy a flew carr and help finance their grandchildren's college education. very nice. all right. very nice. all right. we're back in a moment.
